Ekla’s Natural Latex Couch Is Flame Retardant-Free
With all organic fabric, natural latex, and wool fill, this upholstered furniture is one of the first lines to completely bypass added flame retardants.
EBN’s prayers for a nontoxic sofa have finally been answered. Ekla Home, a small company based in California, exclusively manufactures organic couches, chairs, and beds containing no added chemical flame retardants.
Not only that, but Ekla’s furniture offers a long list of green features, including wood certified to the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) standard, certified organic fabric, adhesives certified to Greenguard Gold, and even recycled steel staples made in the U.S.—proof that the company takes furniture’s notoriously complicated supply chain very seriously. As well as serving residential consumers, Ekla boasts some big commercial clients such as Google, HBO, and Starbucks and ships nationally from Southern California.
